Baguette Magic is truly magic. Mathieu, the man behind the restaurant, grew up in the French countryside in a small town called Villers-Cotterets and he brings his true blue mastery of French cuisine to this humble James Island spot. Stop in for breakfast items like an egg sandwich on a baguette with pepper, onion, tomato, and cheddar or a cheese omelete with a side (get the potato gratin if you know what’s good for you) and petit croissant. For lunch you’ll find sandwiches served on both baguettes and croissants, all baked in-house, and salads like the salade verte with seasonal greens and the Framboise with baby lettuce and goat cheese. No matter when you go, order as many almond croissants from the bakery as you can carry. Seriously, they’re that good. —Mary Scott Hardaway (Dish, Summer 2019)
